The Glasgow Harbour Tower remind me the Oxygene tower (115 m u/c) in Lyon



I like all of them exept the East One tower.
It remind me the Montparnasse tower with an ugly blue cladding.
For the cladding it is surely because the bad quality of this rendering.

Don't be mad at me... But I think these buildings are predominantly buttugly... Maybe with exception of Elphinstone Place and Glasgow Harbour Tower

I really like Cheapside Towers and East side, hope they'll get built.
Are all this projects in an area or scattered around the city?

I'll be moving to Glasgow University in September, and it was hard not to notice all the construction work going on when I visited on Tuesday. I certainly can't wait to move there!

I had visited Glasgow for a few weeks back in the mid 70's on a high school trip. The one thing I was disappointed with was the lack of skyscrapers. So with that said I'm glad to see so many proposals. Hope more are to follow.

The projects listed there are scattered all across the city, though most of the taller proposals are destined for the city centre.

Posting up the Cheapside Towers (three huge glass boxes) is very misleading because it's been known for some time now that these aren't going to be built. There will still be a high-rise scheme on that site, but it won't be nearly as tall.

Well its the most decent of the proposals so far, unless you have a better, newer image. If you do could you post it up here . Anything other than that monstrosity they unveiled last year which has also faded away from the Public Attention.
